Secret Lives

Sukiya-style rock garden adorning a portion of my front yard.

Almost every security guy that I've ever worked with has had some sort of secret life, an existence to where they retreat in order to unwind after long or arduous deployments. Most are quiet about it, and don't share these odd interests with their team mates. I've seen some of the most hardened Special Forces guys you can possibly imagine heading off to cooking school during their down-time. Others pursue photography, gardening, modeling, fishing, etc... All of these outlets seem to be creative, maybe fostering some need to control another reality, or to redirect their attention.
